Tilda Swinton was back on the red carpet for the 2020 Venice Film Festival premiere of  ‘Lacci’ on Wednesday (September 2) in Italy.

The actress was presented with the Golden Lion for career achievement award.

With a touching love letter to cinema, she punctuated with ‘Wakanda Forever,’ in a nod to ‘Black Panther’ star Chadwick Boseman. 

The actress has been to Venice for countless films including all four of her collaborations with Luca Guadagnino, ‘I Am Love’ and ‘A Bigger Splash’, as well as films such as Sally Potter’s ‘Orlando’ and Joel and Ethan Coen’s ‘Burn After Reading.’

And who can forget her ‘Suspiria’ and ‘At Eternity’s Gate’ moments?

Taking the stage, she said there have been “two things I’ve been wondering about lately: one, how much exactly cinema means to me. Two, how to be able to accept this overwhelming honor with a straight face.”

After arriving in Chanel, and following up in Haider Ackerman, Tilda’s look on the night hailed from Chanel’s Spring 2020 Haute Couture collection.

As we know the actress can go either way at these events – masculine or feminine.

The smocking motifs on this white cotton blouse gave this look an lighter than air, ethereal feel, with the black crepe tired skirt also adding plenty of texture.

I was fascinated by the mask she wore from James Merry (commissioned by longtime Tilda collaborator Jerry Stafford) which holds a symbol of ‘responsibility’ and ‘care’.

After this event, the mask will be featured in the auction to benefit two global charities – UN Women & Facing History and Ourselves.  

RAD (Red Carpet ADvocacy) has partnered with celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart and her non-profit, Chic Relief, on a joint fundraising + advocacy campaign called RAD at Venice.

Talent, stylists and brands will donate red carpet looks that are worn throughout the festival for auction.

    the outfit is meh. Doesn’t look bad for her but not much interest either.

    Tilda is always interesting. I like her earrings, skirt, shoes and mask. I’m not mad for the top or her hair colour but I like that she has grown her hair out a bit. She has an altogether softer look which is nice whereas she can look quite severe.

    It may be matronly, but she looks elegant. She is also 59, so if she chooses matronly, that is her privilege.

      I agree. It won’t be on my list with my favourite looks form her, but she looks elegant and polished.
      I am not sure about the hairstyle though. Love the colour but not the styling so much.

        I love the skirt and that’s about it.

    The outfit comes across as matronly both on and off the runway.

      The skirt with a different blouse might’ve looked better.
